*Single mom, of a rock star pre-teen boy. Love, love, love being a mom to him. 99% of the times.
* Hills, treks and camping beckon more often than I am able to oblige.
*If I weren’t a jewelry entrepreneur, I would be a writer or an educator or a singer, or all three.
* Ideal Sunday would have many hours of biking and brunch in the first half of the day, and lazy reading, coffee and cakes in the second half.
* I love to run and hang on the wall (you know those climbing and bouldering walls).
*Quality over quantity any day- things or people in life.
*Love road trips, the romance of the bucolic countryside and the kaleidoscopically changing landscapes.
* A true Saggittarian, could get in trouble for foot in the mouth, but so far people seem to cut me slack.
*Thank you People, you know who you are!** An eternal optimist, believe in the goodness of people
*Favourite quote: It’s what you do in the dark, that puts you in the light!
* True piscean to the core, I can spend hours day dreaming, but then the doer in me works hard to make them come true.
* I love LISTS. Asana, Wunderlist, Evernote are like therapy for me. My husband might not love this about me.
* My relationships over things .
* Mother to a 10 month old Labrador - who cuddles better than most humans.* Breakfast all day is a THING.
* Sources of joy on most days - iced black coffee in summers, tiramisu (made by me), sun on my face in winters, holding hands with Raghav.
* Zariin defined my twenties. I owe a lot of discipline and direction in my life to it.
* I believe that my soul is from France. My fav quote “ Il faut vivre comme on pense, sans quoi l’on finira par penser comme on a vécu..”
* Next on my bucket list - Solo Travel.* I have a lot of gratitude for this life that I get to live.
